Have you been Scroogled?

In July 2012 we wrote about the changes Google made to its Shopping search product, where the engine would only be featuring retailers or manufacturers who paid for their listing to appear within the search.

Recently, Bing has launched its own mock public awareness campaign marked by the website Scroogled.com to shed light on Google’s “insidious” practices which have been “scroogling” consumers. No doubt to capitalize on the holiday shopping season and to encourage searchers to move their holiday shopping to Bing from Google, Google has been featuring quotations by Sergey Brin and Larry Page marked with a “Scroogled Alert.”
